Fall of wickets: 1-113 (Sourav Ganguly, 19.3 ov), 2-180 (Sachin Tendulkar, 31.3 ov), 3-243 (Yuvraj Singh, 40.5 ov), 4-302 (MS Dhoni, 46.6 ov), 5-310 (Dinesh Karthik, 47.5 ov), 6-324 (Ajit Agarkar, 49.1 ov), 7-326 (Ramesh Powar, 49.4 ov)
40.5 to Yuvraj Singh, Yuvraj falls one short of fifty. Full and outside off, Yuvraj slices it uppishly towards point and Collingwood dives to his left to pluck the catch inches off the ground... 243/3
46.6 to MS Dhoni, a slow bouncer does the trick. It was banged in short and it climbed up ever so slowly, Dhoni swivelled, was made to wait before he pulled it uppishly to the right of short-fine leg where Tremlett pulled off a sharp catch. 302/4
19.3 to SC Ganguly, Ganguly falls, going for the broke. He charges down the track , Flintoff hurls it short of length outside off and Ganguly slaps it over point. He doesn't connect well, the ball balloons over point and Collingwood takes the catch running back from point.. 113/1
31.3 to SR Tendulkar, Would you believe it? Tendulkar has gone for 99. Done in by a screamer of a bouncer. It kicked up from short of length and reared shoulder high. Tendulkar tried to fend it away, got his hands in front of his face and the ball seemed to have gone off his arm guard -- though no conclusive evidence was available from television replays --- down the leg side for Prior to take it. They let out a huge appeal and the fatal finger goes up. Tendulkar looks bemused. A wry grin, a shake of head and he walks back. Did it brush the gloves? The replays don't confirm or deny that.. 180/2
47.5 to KD Karthik, yorker gets Karthik. It was full, on the leg stump line and hit him low on the left leg. The hawk eye suggests it would have clipped the leg stump. 310/5
49.1 to AB Agarkar, Full and just outside off, Agarkar moves to the leg side, goes for a big drive through the off side and gets a thickish edge to Prior. 324/6
49.4 to RR Powar, Flintoff gets a five-for. Quite similar to the Agarkar dismissal. Full, straight, just outside off, Powar tries to slog-drive it over cover but ends up edging it to Prior. 326/7

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-76 (Matt Prior, 10.5 ov), 2-76 (Alastair Cook, 10.6 ov), 3-134 (Kevin Pietersen, 21.2 ov), 4-176 (Paul Collingwood, 29.1 ov), 5-185 (Andrew Flintoff, 30.5 ov), 6-220 (Ravi Bopara, 37.5 ov), 7-240 (Ian Bell, 41.3 ov), 8-299 (Dimitri Mascarenhas, 48.4 ov)
48.4 to AD Mascarenhas, Mascarenhas's breezy cameo ends. Death by aggression. He tries to pull a short-of-length delivery over midwicket but ends up lobbing it to midwicket. And then they were two.. 299/8
10.5 to MJ Prior, Munaf gets his man. Another one that kicks up from short of length, Prior makes room by moving to the leg side and tries to flat-bat it but ends up skying it high towards mid off. Dravid comes under it and had to wait for a while before gravity took charge and took a well-judged catch. Munaf has been impressive and has broken through for India.. 76/1
10.6 to AN Cook, Munaf strikes again. Two in two. It landed on a good length, around the off stump and slanted away, Cook has a tentative poke and that proves fatal. Gone.. 76/2
37.5 to RS Bopara, Munaf traps Bopara. Dead plumb. Full in length, on the middle stump line, Bopara, again, tries to whip it across the line but ends up playing all around it and is struck in front.. 220/6
21.2 to KP Pietersen, Piyush Chawla cleans up Pietersen with a one that didn't spin much. Pietersen can't believe it. It landed on the middle and off and went on almost straight. Pietersen anticipated a bit more turn and got his bat down in an angle, outside the line of the delivery. The ball threaded the bat and pad gap, slid in, brushed the inner half of the front pad and crashed into the off stump. Chawla is over the moon, Pietersen looks dazed.. 134/3
29.1 to PD Collingwood, Googly does the trick. Collingwood skips down the track and plays all around a googly that landed on the off and middle line. The ball breaks in to brush the inner half of the front pad before going on to hit the stumps. Good spin bowling from both ends has led to this dismissal.. 176/4
41.3 to IR Bell, goes round the stumps and gets his man. Bell charges down the track again, backing to the legside in the process, but is bit cramped up by the line - outside leg- and lofts straight to Munaf Patel at long on. 240/7
30.5 to A Flintoff, Powar entices Flintoff to his doom. Loopy flighted delivery on the off stump and Flintoff shapes for a huge lofted shot. But the ball dips rapidly on him and his attemped heave goes straight to Agarkar at deep midwicket. 185/5
